    Default Most under utilized DC characters

    Heroes
    Vixen: To me, she is the prime example of a character that has everything but the stuff that turns a character into a franchise. She has a cool versatile power set and a cool look. The things she lacks tend to be on the story side of things. Villains, supporting casts, compelling motivation stuff like that. to me she's a very interesting clump of clay just waiting for some writer to do something interesting with.

    Plasticman: He's weird because he's somewhat well known but, still rarely used. Part of me thinks He and a bunch of DC's other more light-hearted characters deserve their own earth.

    villains

    Giganta: I've always felt Giganta was a cool visual constantly searching for an interesting character. None of her origin stories have really done it for me. She's one of Wonderwoman's most well-known rogue's but I feel her power level really doesn't fit the status of a character who is arguably top four in WonderWoman's rogue's gallery. All to often she comes across like a character Diana should deal with rather easily. kind of makes your rogue's gallery seem weak when arguably your third most known villain seems to weak for the hero.

    The Parasite
    The most under utlized villain in Superman's gallery.

    Sorry, but she was just a Power-House who could swim fast.

    Tula, Dolphin were MUCH MUCH better characters than her..

    Actually the PERFECT ANSWER is

    EMPRESS!!!!!!!!

    She was an awesome character with cool and unique powers, but she only got a very very short run.
    I prefer her to Arrowette..

    Next ones are:

    AURA
    SPARX
    AQUAMARIA
    TRACI 13
    STATIC
    MIA DEARDEN
    JAY GARRICK
    MAX MERCURY

    I also miss the supporting characters of BART ALLEN...

    Nightshade. Unique look, interesting powerset.

    Liberty Belle--Jesse or Libby. One of the more interesting Golden Age characters, great costume, great look. She should she be perpetually in the forefront in some team book and I don't know why she isn't (except for, you know, DC hosing their entire Golden Age roster.)

    DC also acquired Wildfire from Quality, but has only featured her in JSA: The Golden Age and JLA: Destiny so far.

    With DC's history, there could be almost 10,000 underutilized characters...

    Power Girl. Hasn't had a line since the nu52, which doesn't count, so it's really over a decade since classic PG has even been seen, apart possibly from some cover or group shots. And even then, she had a lot fewer appearances than most. And she's never been in live action TV or movies and likely never will be, and only one animated movie with no appearances in series.

    Titano.

    A King Kong-like kryptonite powered kaiju destroying everything in its path with only Superman barely able to put him down.
